Cebu Pacific to mount flights between Palawan and Hong Kong

Cebu Pacific said Thursday it will mount direct flights between Puerto Princesa in Palawan and Hong Kong, one of the largest global aviation hubs, by Nov. 17, 2019.

The low-cost carrier controlled by the Gokongwei family will also proceed with the previously announced Clark-Puerto Princesa flights by Nov, 17.

These two new routes will increase capacity to Puerto Princesa by 7 percent.

Alex Reyes, vice president for commercial at Cebu Pacific, said the Hong Kong route aimed to better connect Palawan to a wider market for tourists through a key international hub.

“Travelers from Hong Kong can now conveniently fly directly to Palawan, and enjoy their island vacation much sooner, saving them time and a connecting flight via Manila,” he said.

“We also enable tourists to enjoy more of the Philippines with options for easy connections between other key domestic destinations. We look forward to flying more tourists to one of the best islands in the world,” Reyes said.

Seats on Cebu Pacific’s newest route are up for grabs for the introductory base fare of P1 from Oct. 15 to 17, 2019. Travel period will be on Nov. 11, 2019 to March 28, 2020.

Palawan has consistently made the lists compiled by renowned travel publications of the world’s best and most beautiful islands. Puerto Princesa serves as the gateway to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage as well as pristine beaches and other natural attractions such as El Nido, San Vicente, and Port Barton.
